KC Passes Street Racing Law For Spectators

City Council Says It Is Illegal To Watch Drag Racing


KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The City Council passed a bill Thursday saying it is illegal to watch a street race, KMBC's Micheal Mahoney reported.
Previously, people caught watching a drag race received a lecture.
Now, the spectators will be ticketed under a new "unlawful assembly" ordinance; they face a $500 fine or up to six months in jail.
City officials hope the new law will help end street racing.
"Because they're not going to do it unless there are spectators. It's no fun unless there's an audience -- that's where the thrill is now," Councilwoman Bonnie Sue Cooper said.
City Councilwoman Deb Hermann said officers know where drag racing usually occurs, but that police respond only to complaints.
"I don't know that they're trolling around looking for them at all," Hermann said.
In addition to the obvious safety hazards of street racing, police said fights and shootings can break out at the races. In recent years, at least six people have died in Kansas City because of street racing, Mahoney reported.
